I'm not necessarily recomending you deliberately try and pass with just an E however...
Ha, no, i just ment if i ended up picking a subject i was really bad at it wouldn't have been a complete waste of time

Hmm, well my options are...
Psychology
chemistry - only predicted a C at gcse
economics - looks boring
English lit - already doing englsih
film studies - not very respected
spanish - never spoken a word of spanish in my life
Music - don't play an instrument
and sports studies - i can't play sports

So i'm stuck really
Instead of doing combined English could you do separate language and literature?

Well, yeah. Otherwise it's not an AS.

They want you to get an AS, not fail at getting one.
I think he means instead of getting an A/B/C sort of grade in the subject.

It is worth reiterating though that very few 'require' it (i delibrately picked one out that i knew did for my example). Most simply prefer 4 AS and it is best not to limit your options at this stage.

I had exactly the same problem last year and in the end I decided to do a "filler" subject which i'm quite glad I did, its really upto you. My friend had the same prob and she only choose 3 so either way is gd!

I also used to think that Economics was a boring subject but then I got a GCSE book and done some reading around the subject and it actually looks like a very broad and interesting subject and i think it will go well with Geography.

Yeah i think so but the combined course appeals more to me - some reading but also some original writing etc

Do 4. You may find, after a year, that you actually want to drop art for example, if you do 4 you will still have 3 A2s. Plus, with more and more people doing a larger number of A-levels these days (back in the day very few people did more than 3) it will help if you do 4 AS.

i hate all this you should take 4 as levels stuff.
if your not interested in the other ones, don't do it.
i took sociology at the start of my as year and was hating it.
i dropped down to 3.
I'm makin my choices in September and it's not effecting them.
Think about what sort of uni you wanna go to.
Want top 10? Take 4.
Otherwise don't. And if you change your mind at a later date just take a 4th as at night classes in your final year. I'm considering that.
